Gert Frank


Not long after the loss of Andreas Kappes and Dieter Kemper the world of Six Days mourns the loss of another of the greats with the news that Denmark’s all time number two Six Day man, Gert Frank passed away on January 19th at the age of 62.

Frank is best known as a Six Day man but was in fact a very versatile athlete; his palmarès range for a Danish tandem title to a bronze medal in the 1976 Olympic team time trial by way of a Danish junior TT championship, national titles as a professional pursuiter and omnium rider to a European Derny title.
